Gotta love the newest rendering of my doppelgänger… Harley. On this tee, she is going up in flames holding a burning photo of her beloved Joker. I love it! It’s perfect. Of course I threw a custom gym shred on that bad girl right quick! Fit chick from Florida told me that she loved my new shirt. The other day I told a Tibetan big boy that he loved comic shirts too cuz he is always wearing them. He said “oh yeah,” and I told him “except I like the bad guys” and he laughed. He is always sporting the good guys. I also scored these new Deadpool sweat pants. They look sweet! The most exciting news is that my shoulderz are getting more cut!!!

Who believed we could skip
stones over swollen waves?
Each stone destined for
barren ocean floor.
Who said we could hold
our breath in lucid dreams?
Every breath consumed
by salted sea.
Who believed we could sail
away in an optimistic ship?
The sail is torn and oceans
have run dry.
Who believed we were
meant to swim?
Simply victims of
attracted moon to sun.

Last week I went to a conference in Austin, Texas to make a presentation and accept a leadership award. I learned so much during the course of the week and networked with many people. I visited the beautiful capitol and the Texas State Archives while I was there.
Austin is an interesting city to say the least, and I can see why they have the saying “keep Austin weird.” After 5 was always a trippy adventure… from the crazy street people, to the bat bridge, to good eats. I didn’t take photos of the weird stuff though!
Amongst a gazillion bars, there was one real gym. It was a Gold’s. I like having a few drinks occasionally, but a gazillion bars is a far cry from my cup of tea! In my off work/downtime, I had the most fun on Lake Travis on my last day there.

Many of us are so busy that quick, convenient meals feel like the only option. Processed foods have become a staple in the western diet; in fact, they account for 60% of the products we buy at the grocery store1. Processed foods are those that contain additives, preservatives, genetically modified materials, hormones and other unnatural materials that compromise the original structure of the food. There are plenty of negative health consequences associated with an increase in consumption of processed foods:
Antibiotics are used in food producing animals which promotes the prevalence of many of the antibiotic resistant bacteria transmitted commonly by food. Treating animals with antibiotics allows antibiotic-resistant bacteria to thrive while susceptible bacteria are suppressed or die.2High Amounts of Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup
It’s well known that excess sugar can lead to conditions including: diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer…

I did a ton of walking and even a good bit of swimming last week and over the weekend in Texas, but no weight training. I also ate way to much while I was in Austin and by Sunday, I felt terrible. Disgusting actually. I could never eat like that all the time nor could I forget about weight training. It is such a part of me that I absolutely need it.
Of course I came back to a three day slew of back to back (all day) meetings after the cheat fest! Just my luck! Not a prob~ I decided that I would hit a straight week of lunch time cardio and then weight train when I get home. I’m committing to three stricter than usual months with regard to clean food, cardio and strength training.
I missed you so much iron. I love you and I refuse to live without endorphins!
